June is my month to send off fabrics and have quilt blocks sewn for me at the Fresh Comfort Virtual Quilting Bee.

Everything else about the blocks, I’m leaving up to them! I’m planning to sew up a whimsical quilt and maybe some accessories for my kitchen when I get them all back.
I did a couple of blocks myself before I sent the fabrics off. I started with this fun wonky house block with a giant chicken in the yard:
Then I sewed up a more traditional Shoofly block with chickens peeking out from each side:
